A dream come true.
318 mountaintop acres with 3,200 square foot lodge and two smaller homes. Endless vistas of the Appalachian mountains with open skies, hardwood forests, rolling pastures, spring-fed ponds and miles of trails to the New River and beyond. On this mountain, the possibilities are endless.
For nearly twenty years, the majestic land of Powell Mountain, West Virginia has offered inspiration and joy to hundreds of children who attended the wilderness adventure programs at Scottie's Place (www.scottiesplace.org), a nonprofit organization that assists children affected by poverty and conflict.
Now, Scottie’s Place is relocating and this land with all its natural beauty is for sale. We hope that you will consider this property for your own as a peaceful estate, a healing retreat center, even a transformative recreational camp. Whatever your wish – there is magic on this mountaintop that will make your dream come true.
It is your DREAM calling you.
What is your dream?
Finding Peace At Home
Are you dreaming of the ultimate private, secluded estate for yourself and your family? Are you intrigued by the possibility of self-sufficiency and self-reliance? Do you seek an alternative to the stress of a world that consumes your energy yet leaves you searching for a greater purpose? Fresh air, fertile land, pristine wilderness, mountain vistas, solitude, simplicity, and miles of hiking and riding trails make this property a homesteader’s paradise.
Reside in the spacious lodge while reserving the two cabins for family and friends. Grow organic food in the raised-bed, circular garden, plant an orchard of fruit trees or berries, stock the two ponds with a bountiful assortment of fish. The extensive infrastructure will delight you as you imagine future expansion. You will share space with the deer and turkey, revel in the quietude of woodland whispers, and know sunshine, crystalline mountain water, and all the wonders of the great outdoors in a way you had never thought possible.
Season after season will unfold before you as you experience the magic of nature in bloom in the spring; hike the cool mountains and canoe the New River all summer long; harvest your food in the fall while watching the hills transform into awe-inspiring tapestries; and enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the winter by the light of a February full moon. The barns and pastures are ready to accommodate horses, goats, sheep and other livestock and the tree house chicken coop is ready for chickens and egg gathering.
This pristine, mountaintop property has all the attributes and amenities to inspire generations of your family for years to come. Live your dream. Bring your family back to the land, back to life!
